Chapter 3: Two-Stage Creation

In C++, Java and other object-oriented programming languages, objects are created with the new operator. Cocoa, on the other hand, uses a two-stage process. The first is allocation, which sets aside memory for the new object, and the second initializes the object.

I typed in the chapter’s example code, a sub-class of NSCell called MyLabeledBarCell. I got it to compile, but figuring out how to use it in an actual, interesting program didn’t seem obvious to me. However, the note on page 42 says that Chapter 21 (Prototype) gives an example of using this class, so I skipped ahead to that chapter. See the next post for the details.
